Holding a free training day:
Introduction to waste legislation at New Connaught Rooms, London, WC2B 5DA
Tuesday 11 September 2007, 9:30 – 16:30. Hugh Smith, Business Support Programme Manager, London Remade, said: “Businesses
working with the collection, reprocessing and recycling of waste have to be especially aware of the legislation of the movement and use of these materials, and need to understand when a material becomes a waste and vice versa. Getting it wrong can be very costly for them, with hefty fines imposed!”
Waste awareness expert Ken Westlake and London Remade's Business Support Programme Manager, Hugh Smith, will lead this day of lectures, case studies and discussion groups, advising businesses on how to ensure they are compliant with
waste regulations. The Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM) will
provide information on regulation affecting business, including Duty of Care and
Waste Management Licensing.
At the end of the course delegates will:
· appreciate the extent of UK waste legislation
· understand the legal definitions of waste
· understand the practical implications of the Duty of Care and Registration
· be aware of the definitions and procedures relating to the Hazardous Waste
· understand the legislation relating to waste management licensing and Pollution Prevention Control (PPC) and their application to the recovery or disposal of waste
Accredited by the CIWM, this course provides one day towards the Institution's Graduate Structured Education and Training Programme, or six hours of Continuing Professional Development.
Small and medium-sized enterprises involved in the production, transport,
handling, treatment or disposal of wastes that want to increase their knowledge of waste legislation should attend. To register a place, contact Alice on 020 7061 6355 or email firstname.lastname@example.org mailto:email@example.com>.
